    Without looking at you vehicle I can only guess there is a dead short to earth which may or may not be happening when the ignition is turned on. Sounds like you may have cooked your battery, recheck your wiring to the starter solinoid, and yes fiber washers are used to stop solinoid wires earthing out against the starter motor body. Whatever you do dont drive off until you are sure your wiring is ok. Take care to check or this job may become an expensive exercise.
